Rich, Russia will lose this war.
Unless you define "lose", your comment is not worth much.
My bet is that what Russia controls now is Russia's for at least 25 years that and Putin's departure will not change things at all in Ukraine's favor.
Russia has spent too much to say oops, sorry, turn tail, and leave the Russians in the territories to their fate.
Also, the West will tell Z to settle or he is on his own. Z will settle or be replaced within a year. At some point soon, even the EU will have had it with a constant fear of Chernobyl 2.0 and the drain to support a sh*ithole like Ukraine that has zero strategic value to them.
they should be a requirement to relinquish their entire nuclear arsenal to Poland and give Ukraine their oil fields.
So you want to be a standup comedian...That was funny...
That will happen right after the US turns Gitmo and Area 51 into amusement parks.
